.36 CALIBER (84 GUAGE) ENGLISH REVOLVER CARTRIDGE IN ENVELOPE – ELEY, LONDON

$50.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 1212-44

Nice example of a hard-to-find cartridge. This specimen is still housed in its protective outer wrapper, with blue label, and brown cloth pull tab.

Many English revolvers from Adams, Kerr, and Tranter were imported into the Confederacy. Many cartridges for these guns were supplied by Eley Brothers of London. Eley manufactured “skin cartridges” where the powder case was made of mutton’s intestine and usually wrapped with thread for strength.

The skin cartridge remains inside its protective paper wrapper. A small portion of the paper has been cut away to show the cartridge “in place” but can be carefully withdrawn if desired. This paper envelope features a cloth “tear strip” that was used to expose the cartridge. On the bottom of the paper envelope is a round blue label, “ELEY / LONDON”.  These would have then been packaged in round tins for shipment.

Measures: D 0.40”  L 1.35".

Reference: “Round Ball to Rimfire” Part Four, pages 174-178.    [jet] [ph:jet]

UPS shipping required.
